Victor Mids, who has studied medicine, is not going to ever take up the medical profession again. The illusionist says he enjoys his current career.
"I don't think I will ever become a practicing doctor again. I think what I am doing now is too much for that," says Mids (32) in conversation with the AD .
The Mindf * ck presenter does, however, intend to conduct research into placebo effects and hypnosis in the coming years. "That too has everything to do with playing the brain. It would be nice to incorporate the knowledge that I have into a book about behavioral psychology. That may be relevant when researching how people experience anxiety or pain."
Mids made several series of the popular program, in which he shows illusions and carries out experiments on people, but unlike colleagues like Hans Klok, he does not see himself quickly ending up in a show in Las Vegas.
"I wish Hans, but for me Vegas is not the highest attainable", says Mids. "Spectacle, fireworks and bangs fit there. I'd rather keep doing what I do now. Influencing the brain in different ways."
According to the illusionist, fellow magicians are "very happy" with what he does. "Since Mindf * ck has been on television, they have a lot more work. They are no longer only in the glittery curtain-like corner, but are now also at hip parties."
